Double the Donation is proud to join Ellucian, the leading provider of software and services built to power higher education, in partnership to offer a new technical integration. 360MatchPro by Double the Donation is the industry-leading matching gift automation tool for nonprofits and educational institutions. Through this integration, university clients are able to access valuable matching gift and employer information directly from their CRM Advance account.

“When searching for a partner in the matching gift space, we knew that we needed an experienced company focused on technical innovation,” said Kim Coelho, Director of Product Management for the Advancement Solutions Portfolio at Ellucian. “Double the Donation brings a wealth of experience and a forward-thinking technological approach from the greater philanthropy world to our advancement solutions.”

When connected to CRM Advance, 360MatchPro automatically scans gift records for matching gift eligibility.

Donors’ employer matching gift data then flows from those follow ups back into CRM Advance, allowing university clients to monitor their matching gifts strategy from a single platform. 

“Time-saving automation is the key to the value of this joint solution,” said Adam Weinger, President of Double the Donation. “360MatchPro shoulders the burden of research, outreach, and reporting that our clients were doing manually. That leaves time for advanced reporting and targeting manual communications to top matching gift opportunities.”

The integration connects Ellucian CRM Advance and 360MatchPro by Double the Donation in a 2-way data sync. This seamless integration consolidates donor data and makes increasing fundraising revenue a quick and painless process for higher education institutions.

Drive More Matching Gifts to Completion with 360MatchPro!

Corporate matching gifts are an underutilized source of fundraising for institutions of higher education. Although 15-19 million individuals in the United States are eligible for matching gift programs, $4-7 billion in matching gift revenue goes unclaimed each year. The joint solution of 360MatchPro and CRM Advance addresses this gap in client potential to turn match eligibility into matched donations.

      • Identify more matching gift revenue opportunities: 360MatchPro enables you to automatically collect matching gift eligibility from donors using email domains, within donation forms, on confirmation screens, or by email. The more matching gift opportunities 360MatchPro discovers and shares with donors, the more matching gift requests your donors will successfully submit.
      • Drive more matches to completion, from form submission to corporate payment: Direct donors immediately to their matching gift forms after the donation process is complete. Then, provide the right information to the right donors at the right time with custom emails based on match eligibility. Target follow-ups drive more completed submissions than ever before, bringing exponentially more matching gift checks from companies through your door.
      • Reallocate your time from routine follow-up to your top opportunities: Your time is valuable, so why spend it chasing small dollar-value matching gifts? Let 360MatchPro automate your matching gift outreach while flagging your highest-value opportunities, allowing your team to personalize follow-ups to the most valuable match-eligible donations. Rest easy knowing that 360MatchPro can handle the rest.This image shows valuable features of 360MatchPro. It also uses a line graph to represent increasing donations for your organization.
